I'm on the same fence right now... Trying to decide between a CVA Accura MR and a Thompson Pro-Hunter FX. I'm leaning towards the CVA but want to handle each and see how they feel. Good Luck with your decision.
I own all t/c muzzys, but all my friends own cva Optimas and they're a better gun for half the money. Check walmart they discontinue them now for great prices! Cva all the way, save your money and buy good glass!!!!!!!
I don't own a TC inline, but I do own a CVA inline. I've had an optima for 11 years. I really can't complain. It's accurate, affordable and if it ever didn't go bang it was my own dumb fault. I got mine from the bargain cave at Cabelas. It was less than half the price of the Pro-hunter or the encore. For a couple years my CVA optima was the only firearm I was using for deer in SRA's. I made some of my best shots at deer with that inline. I also think it's a mental thing and knowing I had one shot. I wouldn't knock my optima one bit. It is a great inline. Mine is a 45cal by the way.
My main gun is my flintlock so I didn't want to spend too much so I bought a CVA v2 optima. The gun is very accurate and I shot a nice doe with it last November. I only paid $180.00 at the end of last year when Walmart discounted it. It was originally $260.00
